Today I have one of the new OPI Mariah Carey polishes for you. This is one of the liquid sand polishes, which is a new textured polish. I know I'm a little late on swatching these, you can find them all over the internet. I had promised myself I'd get these OR the Zoya Pixies and since the Pixie's were a little cheaper for me I went with those. Then my husband found these for a steal and since I've always loved Mariah....well...here they are anyway! This one is a red jelly with larger glitter pieces and then some stars. A word of advice, the stars sink to the bottom of the bottle so if you want them on your nails, you'll want to sit the bottle upside down for a few minutes before polishing. Shaking seemed to be less effective for me but I went ahead and swatched without the stars. These actually go on very easily and dry pretty quickly. They say to use base coat but no top coat but I skipped both. You can tell when it's dry because it has a really matte textured appearance, even though it's still sparkly. I waited a little longer between coats than I'd normally do with polish because I wanted to make sure it would dry all the way fairly quickly but it still dried much faster than I expected. It wasn't difficult to remove either, like some glitters can be. I had no staining with these, no damage to my nail from removal, and they're not exceptionally rough. It's sort of the same way a fine grit file feels. Here's a close-up of this one for you:
What do you think? Love it or hate it?
